Description

    Technical Field
  • The present invention relates to a mechanism and an operation method thereof to change the position of a superlift counterweight of a crawler crane, specifically it relates to a stepless luffing mechanism for the superlift counterweight of crawler crane and an operation method thereof.
  • Background
  • Presently, most crawler cranes usually change the superlift radius by changing the angle of the superlift mast, thus to change the position of the superlift counterweight and to adjust the barycenter of the superlift counterweight in order to ensure the stability of the whole machine when hoisting. By only changing the angle of the superlift mast to achieve changing of the position of the superlift counterweight, it is needed to place the superlift counterweight on the ground every time, and to change the angle of the superlift mast thereafter, then the superlift counterweight will be lifted after the superlift radius is adjusted. Such a method can not be applied during operation. Accordingly, it is not only complicated but also time-consuming, strenuous and poor performing, and it requires a large working space.
  • US 6283315B1 has disclosed a crane, preferably a derrick crane. Fig. 7 shows a derrick crane without boom, on the derrick 30 of which, the suspended ballast 31 is hung by means of a cable 32. The traveling chassis and revolving structure are, in principle, designed in the same manner as described in relation to Fig. 1. The suspended ballast 31 is connected with the revolving structure 33 of the derrick crane by means of a telescoping beam 34. The telescoping beam 34 is connected, in the manner shown in Fig. 8, to the revolving structure 33 by means of a pin joint 35 and to the suspension of the suspended ballast 31, in an articulated manner, by means of the pin joint 36. The telescoping beam 34, as can be seen in Fig. 7, can be telescoped or extended outward in accordance with the current load or in accordance with the current luff angle of the boom (not shown), so that the load moment corresponding to the pivoting angle of the boom can be produced simply by a corresponding telescoping outward of the suspended ballast.
  • CN 201292224Y has disclosed a movable counterweight device for a crawler crane. The device comprises a counterweight connected with the A-shaped frame of the crawler crane, a counterweight pulling rope with one end connected with the counterweight and the other end fixed on a platform of the crawler crane, and a hydraulic oil cylinder, wherein, the hydraulic oil cylinder is arranged on the platform of the crane, and a pulley which is supported against the counterweight pulling rope is connected at the top end of the piston rod of the hydraulic oil cylinder. The utility model enables the counterweight pulling rope to drive the counterweight to swing clockwise or anticlockwise through the stretching of the piston rod so as to change the operating torque of the counterweight to the hoisted object, and the crawler crane further has different lifting capacities.
  • CN 101021731A has disclosed a torque control method and device on the condition of superlift of a crawler crane takes the ratio of actual loading pressure and maximum permissible value of the crane main luffing rod as the main luffing percentage A, and the ratio of pull sum for crane superlift counterweight upgrading fuel tank and counterweight as the using percentage B to realize the torque control according to the relation of A and B. It also provides a method of achieving the above device, which includes: buzzers, lights, pull sensors set on the main luffing rod, pressure sensors on the superlift counterweight fuel tank, the controller coupled with the above components and the interface coupled with controller.
  • CN 1697778A has disclosed a mobile crane with a carrier and a superstructure which is slewably arranged thereon has a superlift device with an SL counterweight for increasing lifting capacity. The SL counterweight can be lifted from the ground in order to execute slewing movements of the superstructure and its slewing radius is changeable. The crane has an electronic control device with a computing device and with a display. In order to avoid costly conversion work on the SL counterweight and to increase operating safety, a program is stored in the electronic control device, which program determines a permissible operating field for crane parameters from the parameters comprising load size and load radius, size of SL counterweight and SL counterweight radius while taking into account the stability criteria and capacity criteria of the mobile crane and displays this operating field graphically on the display. Within this operating field, these parameters may be safely changed, the rest of the parameters remaining constant, and the lifting of the SL counterweight from the ground can be ensured.

  • Embodiments of the present invention will be further illustrated with the drawings.
  • As shown in Fig. 1, a stepless luffing mechanism for a superlift counterweight of a crawler crane, including a main luffing mast 0, a lift cylinder 2, a variable amplitude construction 3 for the superlift counterweight, a pulling plate 4 for the superlift counterweight, a superlift mast 5 and a measuring transducer installed under the variable amplitude construction 3 for the superlift counterweight. The lower end of the lift cylinder 2 connects to a superlift counterweight 1, the upper end of the lift cylinder 2 connects to the lower end of the front part of the variable amplitude construction 3 for the superlift counterweight; the upper end of the front part of the variable amplitude construction 3 for superlift counterweight connects to the lower end of the superlift counterweight pulling plate 4; the upper end of the superlift counterweight pulling plate 4 connects to the superlift mast 5 by a lifting rope, and the other end of the superlift mast 5 connects to one end of the platform 7. There is a mast angle sensor set on the superlift mast 5. The lower end of the variable amplitude construction 3 for the superlift counterweight connects to a pin of the platform 7; the lift cylinder 2 drives the superlift counterweight 1 to move in a vertical direction to adjust its position along the vertical direction to ensure the superlift counterweight 1 is at an appropriate height.
  • Please refer to Fig. 2 and Fig. 3, which show a hydro-cylinder support 31, a translating hydro-cylinder 32 that is set in the front end of the hydro-cylinder support 31, hydro-cylinder piston rod support(s) 33 that is/are set in the front end of the translating hydro-cylinder 32, a connecting support 34 that is set in the front end of the hydro-cylinder piston rod support(s) 33 and pulling plates 35 that are set in the front end of the connecting support 34. The pulling plates 35 includes a first pulling plate 351 and a second pulling plate 352, the upper ends of the first pulling plate 351 and the second pulling plate 352 connect to the upper end of the lift cylinder 2, the lower ends of the first pulling plate 351 and the second pulling plate 352 connect to the lower end of the superlift counterweight pulling plate 4. The translating hydro-cylinder 32 drives a hydro-cylinder piston rod to move in a horizontal direction. The measuring transducer includes a length sensor 61 and an angle sensor 62; the length sensor 61 is installed at the lower part of the hydro-cylinder support 31 to measure the projecting length of the translating hydro-cylinder 32; the angle sensor 62 is installed at the lower part of the hydro-cylinder piston rod support(s) to measure the included angle between the variable amplitude construction 3 for superlift counterweight and the platform 7.
  • Please refer to Fig. 1, Fig. 2 and Fig. 3, the level position of the superlift counterweight is adjusted through controlling the telescopic movement of two superlift counterweight translating hydro-cylinders 32 of the variable amplitude construction 3 for the superlift counterweight to make it move away from the center of gravity of the vehicle or approach the center in a horizontal direction. It is pushed from point A to point B, or retracted from point B to point A.
  • When the pressure on the pulling plates of the main luffing mast 0 is reduced; the superlift counterweight translating hydro-cylinder 32 may retract stroke. When the pressure on the pulling plates of the main luffing mast 0 is suitable, the superlift counterweight translating hydro-cylinder 32 is at a lock position with no movement. When the pressure on the main variable amplitude pulling plate is increased, the superlift counterweight translating hydro-cylinder 32 may be pushed forward and the stroke is increased.
  • Please refer to Fig. 3, there is a pressure sensor 8 and a proportional electromagnetic valve set in the translating hydro-cylinder 32. In order to ensure the synchronization of the movement of the two translating hydro-cylinder 32 there is a set of pressure sensors 8 in the translating hydro-cylinders 32 which adopts synchronization control logic. When the translating hydro-cylinders 32 are moving, the pressure of the two hydro-cylinders 32 monitored by the pressure sensors 8 will be equal. Otherwise, they will be unequal. If the pressure of the first translating hydro-cylinder 321 is not equal to the pressure of the second translating hydro-cylinder 322, the pressure value difference between the two translating hydro-cylinders has to be dealt with. Dealing with the value difference is mainly achieved by an electromagnetic valve. A first proportional electromagnetic valve 91 and second proportional electromagnetic valve 92 are separately configured in the first translating hydro-cylinder 321 and second translating hydro-cylinder 322. The speed of the hydro-cylinder action is determined by a given electric current. The opening of the electromagnetic valve will be bigger when the electric current is higher, thus the speed of the hydro-cylinder action will also be higher; the opening of the electromagnetic valve will be smaller when the electric current is lower, thus the speed of the hydro-cylinder action will also be lower. Therefore, the speed of the hydro-cylinder action is changed by adjusting and controlling the electric current of the first proportional electromagnetic valve 91 and the second proportional electromagnetic valve 92 set in the first translation hydro-cylinder 321 and second translation hydro-cylinder 322 in order to achieve the synchronization.
  • The length sensor 61 and the angle sensor 62 separately monitor the length value of the variable amplitude construction 3 for the superlift counterweight and the value of the included angle Φ between the variable amplitude construction 3 for superlift counterweight and the platform 7 in real time. And the value of superlift radius, i.e. the position value of the superlift counterweight, can be calculated.
  • Please refer to Fig. 4, the calculating method for the superlift counterweight working radius is as follows:
  • The radius of superlift: R= L7 × cosφ + L4 - L6 wherein:

    • α---the angle of the superlift mast (measured by the sensor for the angle of the superlift mast);
    • Φ---the angle of the variable amplitude construction for the superlift counterweight (measured by the angle sensor);
    • L4---the distance between the hinge point of the superlift mast and the hinge point of the variable amplitude construction for the superlift counterweight;
    • L3---the distance between the top of the superlift mast and the hinge point where the end of the variable amplitude construction for the superlift counterweight connects to the pulling plate;
    • L6---the distance between the hinge point of the superlift mast and the centre line for rotating;
    • L1---the distance between the top of the superlift mast and the hinge point of the superlift counterweight translating mechanism; L 1 = L 2 2 + L 4 2 - 2 × L 2 × L 4 × cosα
      Figure imgb0001
    • L7---the distance between the hinge point of the variable amplitude construction for the superlift counterweight and the hinge point where the end of the variable amplitude construction for the superlift counterweight connects the pulling plate: L 7 = L 1 × cos β + L 3 2 - L 1 2 × sin β 2
      Figure imgb0002
      β = a sin / L 1 L 2 × sinα - ϕ
      Figure imgb0003
  • A method for operating the stepless luffing mechanism, including following steps:
    • Step1: calculating the value of straight line L1 according to the value of α which is measured by the mast angle sensor.
    • Step2: calculating the value of β according to the value of Φ which is measured by the angle sensor.
    • Step 3: calculating the value of L7 according to the value of β;
    • Step 4: calculating the value of the superlift radius R according to L7 and the value of Φ.
  • When the superlift counterweight stepless luffing mechanism of the crawler crane moves between point A and point B, its measuring transducer for the working radius measures, calculates (according to the above formulas), transmits data and displays in real time on the screen of the driver's cab for the operator to monitor in real time.
  • The present invention may realize the stepless variable amplitude of the superlift counterweight radius. And the variable amplitude range is larger and more convenient so that it could achieve the object of making hoisting operation range of the complete machine larger and the machine more stable, safer and more reliable in the hoisting operation. It further makes use of the operation space of the superlift mast, especially under conditions where the working space is limited, the center of gravity of the superlift counterweight may be changed through changing the stroke of the translating hydro-cylinder without changing the angle position of the superlift mast. Thereby space for variable amplitude of the superlift mast can be saved. And it is also easy to operate and convenient to use.
